Bright-Eyed Hopscotch Bean Bags

Lets play hopscotch!
Grab some chalk and a couple of these bright-eye bean bags and hop to it.
 Good for hours of low-tech summer fun.

MATERIALS LIST:
Worsted Weight Yarn
Size U.S. 4mm Hook
Stitch Marker
Beans
Scissors
Tapestry Needle
 
TIPS:
Pattern is worked in rounds. Do not join and do not turn. It may help to use a stitch marker at the beginning of each round. Move marker up as each round is completed.
 
Starting out: With color for center of flower ch 2.
Rdn 1: Work 6 sc in the first ch stitch. (6sc)
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc of the last round. (12sc)
Rnd 3: {Work 1 sc in next sc, then 2 sc in next sc.} Repeat between {} around. (18sc)
Rnd 4: {Work 1 sc in next 2 sc, then 2 sc in next sc.} Repeat between {} around (24sc)
Rnd 5: {Work 1 sc in next 3 sc, then 2 sc in next sc.} Repeat between {} around (30sc)
Rnd 6: Work 1 sc in each sc of the last round. (30sc)
Rnd 7: With color for bottom of flower work 1 sc in each sc of the last round (30sc)
Rnd 8: {Work 1 sc in the next 3 sc, sc2tog in the next sc.} Repeat between {} around. (24sc) 
Rnd 9: {Work 1 sc in  the next 2 sc, sc2tog in the next sc.} Repeat between {} around. (18sc)
Rnd 10: {Work 1 sc in the next sc, sc2tog in the next sc.} Repeat between {} around. (12sc) DO NOT FASTEN OFF! 

Use a stitch marker to hold your place.
Attach desired color for flower petals to any free stitch between round 6 and 7.
 Work 1 sc in each stitch around. (30sc)
Then {Work sl st, skip a stitch, 5 dc in the next st, skip a stitch, then sl st in the next st.} Repeat between {} around. (6 flower petals) Fasten off.
Fill flower with beans. Return to where you left off at Rnd 10. Work sc2tog around. (6sc) Fasten off leaving a long tail. Weave through the stitches of the last round and tighten to close. Knot and weave in ends.
Happy hopping!

  12. Most of the ones up for sale are used books, but you may find some gems here and
    there if you look carefully. Affiliate marketing is when you market other people.

    You can solve any tax problem immediately if you
    have the right CPA working for you.

  13. One of the main reasons that have led to the failure of other diet plans when compared to HCG weight loss drops is that in HCG diet
    plan, there is no chance that a patient will
    feel hungry because along with 500 calories a day, the patient is only allowed to have high protein meals with rich fiber food which
    is why the patient won't feel hungry and in fact they feel contented all day.
    This has however been made easier thanks to HCG supplements
    that come loaded with vitamin B12, minerals and amino acids that
    are likely to be absent in most diets for quick weight loss.
    You can have a look at them and then decide whether to
    choose one for you or not.

  15. I do agree with all the ideas you've presented on your
    post. They're really convincing and can definitely work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for novices.
    May just you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.

  16. I'm not sure why but this website is loading incredibly slow for
    me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a
    issue on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
